My 3 year old SSD crashed and have since replaced it.

In BIOS, instead of OCZ Agility showing up, it shows up as YOKOMONO ROM. Like it's just a big brick of ROM but since it is being recognized, is there a possibility I could revive it with a simple flash???

I don't know. Why don't you go try it?

You should be able to, but if you run into trouble, try using Parted Magic to do a secure erase of the SSD before flashing.

You might want to check with OCZ, they extended the warranty on some of their SSDs, yours might still be under warranty.
